like Finster - sometimes I liked it, sometimes not. my main gripe with the mide was Jerry's habit of changing the "effect" to often within one song/jam. a couple of birdsongs come to mind the the rapid change was more jarring than "cool." he never struck me as having much "fluidity" in using various midi effects - seemed to be more of a toy for him to play with than an instrument enhancement with which to make art.

'seemed to be more of a toy for him to play with than an instrument enhancement with which to make art.'

That is kind of my feeling too Dire. You just articulated it much better than I did.
It seems to me he played with the MIDI alot more than he did with any of his other effects. Maybe not, but it seemed that way to me. Maybe the MIDI was more noticible so it seemed like he played with it alot more.

What's this... You're actually commenting on a Grateful Dead topic that doesn't involve 9/18/87. Wow!

though I must admit that I listened to the Dew from that show the last three nights before bedtime. maybe i have some subconscious desire to precipitate an apocalyptic nightmare so I can jar myself out of a sound sleep at 3am and go play more Black Ops

This explains those "mooo-ving", sad emails from Bessie about how you never have time for her anymore.

What's a bovine to do? Do they have a cloven hoof platform for interested parties? Anything to get back in your life, apparently...
